The Fashiondex, Apparel Industry Publishers, was started in 1992
by a fashion designer who had arranged her Rolodex into types of fabrics
and trims, instead of from A to Z. When she noticed that everyone where
she worked was using her Rolodex when they needed to do their research and
sourcing needs, she saw there was a need for a similar product. Fashiondex
was formed, that
was reproduced in book form, and several months later the first
was produced. They started selling that directory and eventually created
and published many other books that their designer, and her industry friends,
thought were needed to make their jobs easier. A
goal to create the most up-to-date, well-formatted and easy-to-use design-industry
sourcebooks available, along with publishing the best industry tools and
books available, for all those in, and entering, the design industries.
Their sourcebooks are unique, as they do not involve cross-referencing and
leafing through pages and they have kept the books small, so you can keep
it on your desk, or throw it in your backpack or totebag. They contact all
suppliers listed in their sourcebooks two times each year, to keep the book
and their customers as up-to-date as possible.
